    I can't speak for the US, but the biggest religion in Africa (so mainly black ethnicity) is Islam followed closely by christianity. And Islam is a very strict religion- praying 5 times a door at the Mosque, giving to charity, fasting from sunrise to sunset in Ramadan.

    Do you want the sugarcoated answer or the real answer?

    The real answer is that there is a correlation between levels of intelligence/education and levels of religiosity.

    The less educated a group is, the more religious it tends to be.

    On average, blacks have an IQ 20 points lower than ethnic Jews, non Jewish whites, and Asians.

    The black high school graduation rate is also below the national average.
